Mastering Design Patterns
Mastering Design Pattern is now considered a critical part of IT architect’s roles and looking from a larger perspective, it is also becoming important for most enterprises. The proper use of design patterns in software development allows the developer to exploit the previous experiences with proven arrangements of objects, greatly increasing the efficiency of the coding process.
We believe in a practical implementation of the knowledge. This is why we conduct hackathons, where the teams come up with different ideas around the given theme. This is not only treated as a competition but also the best ideas are implemented in our daily processes.
Soft Skill Development of AtliQers
The fun-filled skill-building sessions are focused more on building socio-emotional, management, and communication skills. These fun activities not only brush up the skill sets but also ease work stress. Even though bringing in a game-time in working hours seems counterintuitive, a bit of fun competition can do wonders by showering positive effects on the team. Two of our major soft skill-building sessions include Wow Wednesday & Toastmaster. The games are simply fun yet play a major part in boosting the midweek spirit. One of the most underestimated benefits of fun games is attracting and retaining young talents.
Working 5 days a week- Wednesday is a halfway milestone. While some of us are creatively drained and some are eager for the weekend, game time is something that could lift our energy. Each employee gets a turn to host the event, allowing them to enhance their stage presence and management skills. Usually designed as a team game, it also helps in strengthening bonds among the employees.
Toastmaster is a group where employees help each other in improving their communication skills. The concept has been inspired by the international organization of the same name. Every week a task is allocated, which can be public speaking, group discussion, or debates. The main aim of this is to allow the employees to gain more confidence while addressing a group, presenting their ideas, or representing a team.
We consider the skill development training sessions to be one of the most productive happenings of our process. It makes us more productive and independent and makes it easy for us to empower every individual. Every session is made to be relevant to our day-to-day requirements and is designed keeping quality and efficiency in mind.
